Barcelona, 18th October 2018. ASCAME co-organized with the Association of Mediterranean Businesswomen's Organizations (Afaemme), the Jordan Forum Business & Professional Women, the Amman Chambers of Commerce and the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, on October 2nd, 3rd 2018, the 10th edition of the Mediterranean Women Entrepreneurs Forum, titled: “Women-in-Tech: The Way Ahead”, within the EBSOMED Roadshow, one of the most emblematic events on women's entrepreneurship.

This year's edition took the form of a Roadshow under the theme “The incorporation of Women entrepreneurs in the digital economy” explored topics relevant to a changing society using innovative tools and unconventional approaches. Businesswomen, policy makers, entrepreneurs and spokespeople from various sectors were present throughout the event to share experiences and encourage public discussion.

During the opening session the President of ASCAME, Dr. El Wakil, highlighted that: “the Mediterranean socio-political and economic scenario is rapidly changing, due to events such as the escalating migration crisis, the political upheavals in North Africa, the sovereign debt crises and change of governments in southern Mediterranean countries. These events make it even more important today to highlight the strong correlation existing between the socio-political and economical dynamics in the region.” ASCAME and its partners commit to keep working together towards a promotion of a full socio-economic cooperation between the two shores of the Mediterranean. 

Throughout the two days of the event, various plenary sessions on the theme of digitalization and several B2B meeting sessions were organized. It was the occasion to present the EBSOMED project in detail. Particularly the opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises to benefit from workshops, seminars, training and an exchange of best practices. The main goal of the workshop was to provide information on development and opportunities to SME's.
